GIF: Jimmy Rollins uses his head ... to field a pop-up
Things haven't been going too well for the Phillies of late, and on Wednesday Jimmy Rollins took a pop-up to the head. He was fine.
This has not been a particularly fun season for Jimmy Rollins. The Phillies shortstop came into Wednesday hitting just .258/.317/.352 (84 OPS+), and the team is on the fringes of contention at best. Then, on Wednesday, this happened on a pop-up:
It wasn't a direct shot to the head, which makes it slightly less funny. Still, anytime a pop-up makes contact with the fielder's head, it's worth a chuckle. Poor Jimmy. At least there won't be a bobblehead to immortalize this play.
Rollins was fine, by the way. Just in case you were wondering.
